I have copies of all my student's history folders, so that I can review them in the event that they have been suspected of violating my schools AUP. I have a student that I am trying to review but for some reason I can not open the History folder. I click on it and nothing happens. If I use the command line I can get into the folder and see the content, but can not open the index.dat file for analyzing. I am the Domain Admin and have ownership of the folder as well as full security rights. How can I get the folder to open so I can analyze the index.dat?

Also, when I right click on this fodler there is no Security tab for me to see who has what permissions. Only the General and NFS Sharing tabs are shown.  if I go to command line and run cacls on the folder I get the following:

D:\STUDENTS\HS\10JOHN.SMITH\HISTORY MYSCHOOL\10JOHN.SMITH:(OI)(CI)F
                                          MYSCHOOL\HS Student Account Admins:(OI)(CI)F
                                          NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)F
                                          MYSCHOOL\10JOHN.SMITH:(OI)(CI)C
                                          BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)F
                                          BUILTIN\Backup Operators:(OI)(CI)C
                                          MYSCHOOL\Domain Admins:(OI)(CI)F
                                          NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)F
                                          MYSCHOOL\HS Staff:(OI)(CI)C

Are you doing this remotely or on the PC itself?
Is this XP Home or Pro? I suppose Pro, since it seems to be member of a domain.
So, is advanced file sharing enabled? If not, see http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/winxpnetworking/ht/winxpsfs.htm to ebable it.
Then get back here.

I was able to access the files by using xcopy to copy the contents of the folder to my desktop.
